at the u.n. yesterday u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, said the resolution would only delay the peace process. >> today's unfortunate and counterproductive resolution places further obstacles in the path to peace. today's vote should not be misconstrued by any as constituting eligibility for u.n. membership. it does not. this resolution does not establish that palestine is a state. >> a leading concern for israel is that the palestinians could now use the status to access the u.n.'s international criminal court, pressing it to investigate israel's practices in the occupied territories. >>> in washington, lawmakers are already threatening to cut millions of dollars in aid to the palestinians should they use their new status to go after israel. >>> the united states senate is ready to consider broad new economic sanctions against iran. and they are aimed at choking off that country's energy and shipping sectors that are believed to keep its nuclear program afloat. yesterday the u.s. gave tehran a march deadline to begin cooperating with a u.n. nuclear investigation. the agency

. bill: any chance republicans fold on raising tax rates? we will find out when we ask senator john f u.n. e, and conservatives say the fight is far from over. >> republicans have stood for one thing specifically, it's held them together, they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing obama wins and he wins big. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. i just finished a bowl of your new light chicken pot pie soup and it's so rich and creamy... is it really 100 calories? let me put you on webcan... ...lean roasted chicken... and a creamy broth mmm i can still see you. martha: unions are stopping work at another busy california port. this scene was last week when the workers picketed at the oakland port. now it is clerical workers at the port of los angeles and nearby long beach who are on strike as well. other unions, including the d
haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since 1967 and really since not long after that when sadat, the relationship has been peaceful. it's been codified by treaty. it is the basis of peace in the middle east to the extent it exists at all. what this shows is we can no longer take that for granted. now that you've had the political change in egypt, you can't
after me. and i am happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and the besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> brian: well, that was his confrontational tone i can remember him having outside of the election and had his first press conference. she appeared on behalftime white house. how dumb was it to put out there nothing with benghazi and no background as opposed to tom brennan or tom donald or anybody else let alone david petraeus and hillary clinton. so you put somebody out there and that was your fault that got the information and we don't know whose opinions and conclusion and the president wants to call out the people who just want answers. >> gretchen: sorry, i thought you were -- >> brian: senator graham and john mccain heard this and this is what they said. >> i will hold her accountable and she volunteered for the assignment. she is incompetent when comes to benghazi and the person i blame the most is the president. my resp

, general john mccain speaking out about u.n. ambassador susan rice's potential nomination as the next secretary of state. rice has come underfire from john mccain and other lawmakers for early remarks about the attack in libya which turned out to be false. while appearing on fox news sunday, senator john mccain said he would be willing to an opportunity to explain her position. listen. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind? >> sure, she can, i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions they took. i will be glad to have the opportunity to discuss the issues with her. >>chris: you are saying she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> she deserves the ability to explain her position. she is not the problem. the problem is the president of the united states. >>heather: republican senator graham joined senator john mccain saying ambassador rise deserves another chance to defend her remarks on the benghazi attack. >>gregg: the official timeline on benghazi attacks, september 14, white house spokesman carney says
was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there was another line coming out of the closed hearing was that they didn't want to say everything they knew in public because they didn't want the terrorists to know that tus government was on to them. >> i heard that.
. thousands of people celebrating in the west bank. they changed the status from un observer. this is what they will be called nonmember observer state. they are voting against the move. and it shows a real lack of commitment to stop it from happening. benjamin netanyahu said the vote violates the path agreement. brian. >> brian: we have a one state solution. if you take the cholesteral lowering pill lipitor listen up. it ran back. and i knew that. ran baxy has stopped the production of the depeneric version of the pill until it determines how glass ended up in the bottle. no word on injuries. this is the first time it has been in trouble and operating under court watch after manufacturing problems were found in the u.s. india plants. >> steve: remember this yesterday. zebra and a pony friend busting out of a petting island zoo. the circus is over. the animal's owner has been fined with a violation. a whole slew of animals including roosters and peacocks. the owner was cleaning the stalls. he claims they are part of a petting zoo he had a permit for. the health department has no record of
this is a strike protected under unfair labor practices. >> that's not just bad advice, that's un-american. americans have the right to strike for certain purposes without being fired. that is something we all ought to worry about. more importantly, these are folks who work full-time and make about $15,500. what is good for walmart, what is good for the economy, what's good for job creation is having people paid enough to buy the products that they sell. henry ford, that great socialist, understood that if you underpaid retail workers, auto workers, people like that, the economy would collapse. what these workers are saying is that walmart is mistreating them. they have a right to say it. it frankly would be better for everybody if they get to paid a little bit more. >> but -- >> no one is forcing these employees to work at walmart. if they could get paid more elsewhere, they would leave and get paid more in other jobs. besides, with an unemployment rate near 8%, there are plenty of other people who want those jobs at walmart. also, everyone thinks that they're underpaid. you prob
there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >
-qaeda-inspired affiliated attack. yet five days later, the ambassador to the u.n. went out to all sunday news shows and told what was absolutely defiance of any rational logic or thinking. people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket propelled grenades. that was obvious on its face. why did they deceive the american people? why did the president of the united states continue to deceive the american people and the world? we need a select committee. nobody died in watergate. nobody died in iran-contra. four people died here. because of their lack of action as my friend lindsey graham says, they turned that consulate into a death trap. >> steve: they did indeed. now, senator, for people watching, they might not understand, we know some committees are meeting right now on capitol hill behind closed doors. you're calling for a select committee which politically might be hard -- i understand the republicans practice bely would go for that, but it might be hard to get the democrat controlled senate to sign on board with a select committee. >> it's going to require public pressure. the am
to al-qaeda in that u.n. speech to the world was that al-qaeda had been weakened and osama bin laden was dead. so i think this raises additional questions. it goes beyond ambassador rice. first of all, why were the talking points changed? it doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al-qaeda that. doesn't pass the laugh test. buff also why was the president out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world? >> steve: absolutely. because we don't know a lot of what is told by the intelligence community to the president of the united states, but we understand that 72 hours after the attack the presidential daily briefing, which tells the president about all the stuff that's going on, and it's classified, said just that. it wasn't spontaneous, and that it apparently had ties to that al-qaeda affiliate. so the president knew, even though he was out saying something else. >> i think it's deeply troubling, we got to get to the bottom of it. we have to assume he's receiving the classified information and we have no know why were the talking points
is meeting with the u.n. secretary general and so every is hoping truth does stick. officials have been hinting there could be one in the next several hours. but on the ground, they are bracing for a possible ground invasion with thousands of soldiers on the border. back to you. >> stay with us over there. we'll be watching hopefully it doesn't happen, but a possibility. we appreciate your report. the nbc team over there, rich article ard engel, he must live in the area because he's always where needs to be. always things exploding around. >> when we come back, we'll talk more about the stories that are likely to drive today's trading, including the crisis in the middle east. we've also got earnings coming up and a speech from ben bernanke. we'll be talking about the looming fiscal cliff. we'll put them all into perspective. i'm glad we got cdw and cisco to design our data center. yeah, the cisco ucsc series server, with the intel xeon processors, help us scale smoothly, like a perfect golf swing. how was it before? clunky and full of unnecessary impediments. like charles' swing. i hear
recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements rep
egypt is meeting with other key players in the region. including the prime minister of turkey, u.n. secretary general moon as well as the prime minister. intense negotiations to avert a ground war in the coming day. >> entire world watching. thank you very much. >>> when we come back, one analyst says the recent sell-off in apple is insanely insane. he is going to rationally explain why next. later, what do beer, bicycle and vegan ice cream have in common? lot more than you might think. we will explain why it is all about investing in this country.
